Services/Fees

Fixed routes

Fixed route service is provided on a repetitive, fixed-schedule basis along a specific route with vehicles stopping to pick up and deliver passengers to specific locations; each fixed-route trip serves the same origins and destinations, unlike demand responsive and taxicabs. Fixed route buses depart from the plaza every 40 minutes.

STARS operates Monday through Saturday except for the following major holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
